Day 2 AEE- My First Seminar- What Women Want In Porn.and Annette Schwartz
The sexy and beautiful Annette Schwartz
Day 2 started off early for me, I was up at the crack of dawn after a few long day. Don and I went to grab breakfast at Denny's. On our way out he introduced me to Roger from Rogsreviews who I have had the pleasure of reading his blog postings on MySpace. Afterwards we made our way to the Venetian to the expo. Once there I made my way over to the Adam & Eve booth to see if I could re-schedule my interview with Carmen Luvana , there was a scheduling conflict the day before and it overlapped with her signing. I did get to speak to her in Spanish about a few things. I even got her to autograph my copy of Lady Scarface.
I made my way over to one of the many seminars that day. What I should have of done was go with my first instinct and listen to Don but I went anyway. In the course of 20 years in retail as a Buyer I know the highs and lows of Marketing and Sales. I feel that if major retail companies took the time to listen to me I sure as hell knew what I was taking about. The same goes for my reviews...
If you've been reading my reviews , you would know first hand that I have always been very vocal in speaking up about what woman look for in porn. Women today do not want to watch stuff that is solely made for men in mind nor do they wish to watch endless hours of non-satisfying G/G porn. They want to be able to enjoy every aspect of whatever title they want with out feeling left out. It is the combination of three things that I focus on when watching a adult title claiming they are made for women: sexuality, chemistry and sensuality.
The seminar had a rep from Babeland and a few other women also representing other companies also sat on the panel. The one name I did recognize was Kelly Holland from Penthouse. I had spoken to Ms. Holland over the summer about Penthouse's "Out of Control". I was very impressed with the group Uriah which she used for the soundtrack. It was a Q&A where basically the question seemed focus on one topic.
I will be honest when I say that it was rather hard for me to stay focused and awake through out it. At one point I had to take a break after almost an hour and get some fresh air. I did return and sat in the back not wanting to be rude in case I wanted to get up and leave which I did. I went in there under the premise that it would have been more interactive with the audience and that real question were going to be asked.
I found it to be very boring and repetitious to what I have been saying all along. No one really touched the true core of what women really want except for Ms. Holland who mentioned her directing skills when it came to the material and content for Playgirl TV and who currently directs and produces for Penthouse answered many of the questions.
There is one woman that comes to mind that should have been on that panel and that would be Candida Royalle. She is definitely one woman that focuses on what we as woman want to watch. Granted that we all have different viewing taste and that's what keeps us apart from the men.
Women today have become a much strong and positive force in the adult industry. You have more women behind the cameras than you did years ago. Its so much easier to have a woman writing and directing porn because they know what looks and feels good equally to men and women.
As I interviewed the beauties from Digital Playground the day before, I asked the same question to each of them.. " Do you see yourself being behind the camera directing later on down the road" and each replied with a firm " Yes" With that being said all women have the will to become a dominant force in any work place including how we watch porn.
Its changes will be based three things.. Chemistry, sexuality, and sensuality. Women as much as men want to be seduced mentally and physically. They want to have the couple they are watching on the DVD make every touch count. What they don't want to see is performer who aren't into the other or rushed work. One thing that I have come to notice is that in many of the adult titles I've watched and reviewed is that many man and woman aren't into giving oral as they love getting it. Which makes me wonder why are they working in porn I the first place.
Some women love to be dominated while others enjoy being the Domme. Sometimes the romantic setting isn't enough to push one past the edge to have that mind shattering orgasm.. For some treating her or him as a slut is what makes things work. No one really knows what works for everyone but in an industry where there is so much to chose from women and men both have a vast selection to chose from.
Now that I've got that off my chest back to the showroom floor where I met up with Don. After I had told me my take on the seminar, we went walking around taking some pictures of performers. I think what made my day was meeting Evan Stone. Talk about being star struck.. I just hope that I didn't make a fool out of myself in front of him. Don was nice enough to take a few pictures of me with him being that the batteries in the camera died. I was so hyper after meeting him that I had to call my friend and let her know what just happened.
Ok I'll admit to being star- struck but you have to realize that I enjoy watching Evan Stone in action. He makes porn fun to watch and you really don't know what he will do in front of a camera. By the same token a few minutes later we find the sultry Annette Schwartz. She is one of the many female performers that I love to watch. I mean look at that body! Tell me that you wouldn't want to have her all to yourself.
Now I'm talking like a fan.. We took so many pictures that afternoon and I was introduce to many of his contacts. It was nice to know that many of them have been reading the reviews on XCritic. I even got to meet Howard from Club Jenna that day as well as Tristan Taramino who invited us to the party for Babeland. I got to take pictures with Derrick Pierce and Christian. Don and I headed back to the room and grabbed a bite to eat before heading off to meet up with G. After that we went and hung out a bit at the Circle Bar .
